As expected, the next generation of GTI still takes the standard golf fascia, but with sporty elements. And there seems to be more light in the hive-like grille. This is certainly a different design for a hatchback, but it still relies on evolution rather than revolution.

As for the configuration under the hood, people already know. Last year, VW revealed that a 2.0L turbo-four engine would power the next generation of GTI. It is likely to be the same as today’s car engines, but after a lot of upgrades it can generate at least more power. Right now, the car has an output of 228 horsepower. VW also said the most powerful version of the engine would deliver 296 horsepower, but it definitely sounds like a Golf R rather than a GTI.

Internally, the digital cockpit will become standard, as will the V2X. But don’t worry about seats, because they’re still familiar and favorite traditional plaid patterns.
